A better made film than its predecessor
8 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

For the fans of Liam Neeson, a good treat to watch. For others just another predictable action flick. From the start we have actors putting on a show with guns and muscles, with beautiful cars and many amazing street scene's depicting LA, this is an amazing third for a franchisee. What i loved the most was the introduction, where perfect shot photograph's of the most loved city capturing the night lights were displayed. On the negative side, the cameras were shot at a very close angle, the plot had not enough depth and was very predictable just like its antecedent. Hope everyone enjoys this one for a first film of the year.
